RIROSE.HTM #1
June 1998

 

 

 RIROSE.HTM will be a regular feature in the RI Rose Society's newsletter. It will feature information on the many uses of the world wide web (internet). A big part of this will include how to make the most of the different "search engines", (like Yahoo, Infoseek, and Lycos), that find useful websites for you. Let's start out with getting to the society's own website. If you're not an experienced user of the net, then the first thing to understand is that every webpage has an address called a URL (Universal Resource Locater). The URL is the address you type into your web browser (Netscape, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.) to reach your destination. Sometimes that's a confusing thing to do the first time, there's usually no empty place on your browser for you to put this address. So, use your mouse (by clicking and dragging) to "select" or highlight whatever address is already at the top of your web browser. Now that it's selected, whatever you type next will go right in that box. For our site, type: http://www.rirs.org and then hit return. If you already can get to the Amercan Rose Society website, an easier method to get to ours is from their page of "links" Their URL is http://www.ars.org/. Once you get to our webpage or any other one that you like; the first thing to do is to add a "bookmark" to the site so that you can get there in one click instead of typing the address each time. For Netscape, go up to Bookmarks and choose "Add bookmark". For AOL users, there's a little heart you can click on that adds the webpage to your list of favorite sites. Now that you can find our website, explore it this month. You can e-mail any questions to Patsy Cunningham, patham@cox.net. Remember to bring in any good rose photos to the next meeting so I can scan and put them on our webpage.
